LImited Places please book soon. Open to Adults and Young People aged 13 years and over.

Barking Learning Centre

Saturday, 10 March 2018, 10:30 - 16:00

All animation at its core is stop motion film making, and aims to bring stories to life, one picture at a time. There are many techniques in stop motion animation, but for this day long workshop we are playing with three. Applying visual storytelling strategies to develop a 10 to 20 second scenario, you will finish a stop motion animation using all three of the techniques introduced throughout the day. You’ll also be working in pairs for setting up and shooting your shorts, taking turns directing the scene. The goal is to use equipment and materials that you could easily purchase on your own and continue to develop your visual storytelling skills in stop motion film making.

Materials and equipment are provided and little to no experience in any kind of timeline software is required.

You are invited to bring small toys, knick knacks, fabrics, patterned papers, small natural objects like stones and twigs or doll house furniture to add to your film in our found object section of the animation.

Anne-Marie Perks is a visual artist who loves to tell stories in different mediums. She has been producing artwork for design studios, children’s books, magazine publishers and film directors for a long time (over 30 years)! These days, she spends most of her time writing and creating artwork for her own stories for picture books, graphic novels and animation shorts. When not working on her own stories, Anne-Marie teaches concept art, life drawing and fundamentals of animation over two BA Honours courses at Buckinghamshire New University in High Wycombe.
